The Girl

I'm so glad you found this tip useful. Back when I was trying to "game" the Flickr system and land in Interestingness, I found this made a huge impact on whether my best images were seen and heavily commented upon. The days I uploaded only one photo with a powerful message were some of my biggest hits. I also found that the time of day I posted made a difference about whether my images were seen or not. I found that 8-10 am EST were the best times for my audience, so when I was living overseas I held my images until 5 pm in the afternoon so I could make the 8-9 am mark. Some people disagree that it doesn't work this way, but I feel confident that these things are factors....

Nowadays when I post a slew of images (or watch my contacts do this), I feel like I'm cheapening the potential of the medium and missing out on sharing some of my best work with folks and vice versa. I can see how these "theories" of mine could have a larger impact on using Flickr for online campaigns... Hmm, I smell a blog post.

It smells like a good Michaela. I hope you'll spend some time reflecting your flickr practice and share it with us ...
